This dataset was used as base data in Reefs at Risk.
Shipping activity data used in the model of threat to coral reefs from marine-based pollution and damage in the Reefs at Risk Revisited project.
This dataset was derived at WRI from the World Meteorological Organization Voluntary Observing Ships Scheme, October 2004 - September 2005 as modified by Halpern, et al. 2008. A Global Map of Human Impact on Marine Ecosystems. Science 319: 948-952. It identifies the areas where shipping traffic was in the top 5% of global shipping intensity.
Data set is not for use in litigation.
